Ryzen 9 3950X doesn't eat up a crazy amount of power. It uses slightly more than the 3900X but offers better performance at higher frequencies and with 50% more cores.
We were able to get the CPU to 4.4GHz with a fabric speed of 1800MHz and DRAM at 3600MHz with XMP enabled. Our VCore was around 1.38v full load, and our temperatures were quite manageable. Performance is a bit better than stock, so PBOD might offer you better performance than a manual all core OC depending on your use case.
The CPU was very easy to take up, and 4.4GHz all cores is something none of the Ryzen 3000 series CPUs we have reviewed can do.
Here is something interesting. We were able to get 4.5GHz and boot up, something we weren't able to do with any of the other Ryzen 3000 series CPUs.
